with a serious pathway forward. >> in this hour at the white house president obama and vice president joe biden will hold another meeting as they push for gun control. this time their meeting is with police from across the country, including the police chiefs of aurora, colorado, oak creek, wisconsin, and newtown, connecticut. all three towns the sites of deadly mass shootings over the last six months. >>> also today, we are covering the interview that has everybody talking. president obama's joint sit-down with outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton. was it his official nod for her potential 2016 run? >> there's no political tea leaves to be read here? >> we don't have any tea. we've got some water here, the best i can tell. but, you know, this has been just the most extraordinary honor. >> is this payback for, let's say, bill clinton? doing such a great job for the obama campaign? >> it would have covered up the awkward fact that they're setting her up for, you know, a presidential run if they broke some news. >> i love joe biden. i think he's earned a shot at it. but if hillary clinton

the virginia techs. >> the march comes one day after vice president joe biden held a roundtable talk about gun control in virginia. kristen welker is at the white house and joins me now. when can we expect the president thoims ta himself to take the gun control debate on the road? >> reporter: i think you can expect president obama to hit the road and talk about gun control in the next several days, if not weeks. the white house has said that he as well as vice president biden will continue to leave the white house, get out of d.c. and build up public support for the proposals that president obama unveiled several days ago. of course, those proposals include increasing and improving access to mental health services, reinstating the assault weapons ban and limiting high-capacity magazines as well as enacting universal background checks. common knowledge around here, craig, is that a lot of those have a good chance of actually getting passed through congress with the exception of that reinstatement of the assault weapons ban. senator dianne feinstein introduced a tough bill to ban assault weapon

as well. >> ed, what was that about? >> it's hard to figure. >> and biden's going out -- >> killing it. >> week in, week out, joe biden is going out, making the deals that have got to be done. he's the mvp of the past six months. this is really sticking it to a guy that has been saying since 2009 he wants to run for president. >> it's hard to figure, if this was at the end of the administration, maybe it makes sense. but the president's going to need joe biden and need him all out for the next four years, no question. >> so what's going on? by the way, you love hillary. you love joe. we all do. >> we all do. >> this doesn't make any sense. >> i think down the road -- first of all, i do think that there's something about just saying, look, this was a great collaboration. we want to put an exclamation point on a great collaboration team of rivals. look, hillary's more popular than the president right now. the president might have had as much to gain on that as hillary did, number one. number two, i think that the president, down the road, could be the peacemaker, the person who comes in
this morning. >>> today vice president biden takes his gun violence message on the word after senator feinstein works to ban assault weapons and other weapons. but the nra says not so fast. >>> a new stomach bug is called the ferrari of viruses. and u.s. health officials say it's taking over the country. >>> all that and manti te'o's bizarre explanation. destruction for safety's sake. and we'll take you to a place where the sun is warm and life is good. good morning. i'm meraryo mara schiavocampo. rivers are freezing in the boston area and in massachusetts, amazing pictures show river falls frozen solid. and here in new york, you can see the famous fountain in bryant park is covered in ice. we'll have much more on the deep freeze coming up in just a few minutes. >>> in after math of thiing shootings in newtown, a new bill has been proposed this washington. dianne feinstein and other democrats talked about the bill that names more than 150 firearms including semiautomatic rifles and pistols and would ban ammunition clips holding more than ten rounds. but feinstein says the bill would exempt more
of policies that he and vice president biden have proposed for dealing with gun policies. and these policies get labeled liberal. but it turns out they are very popular. they are very, very, very widely popular. gallup just did a national poll on the whole list of proposal as that president obama and vice president biden have put forward on gun violence. bang high-capacity ammo clips. that gets majority support in this country. 54%. reinstating and strengthening the assault weapons ban we had for ten years that expired back in '04. majority support. look at that. 60% of the country wants that. making it so only the military and law enforcement can have so-called cop killer bullets, those armor-piercing bullets. 67% of the country supports that. and the numbers get higher from there. emergency response plans in schools. 69% support it. more cops. 70% support it. cracking down on straw purchases, right? where people buy a gun because they don't clear the background check but then they're really buying it for somebody who won't clear the background check. 75% of people support cracking down on
. >>> but the white house is taking its message on the road this morning. vice president joe biden and other members of the task force on reducing gun violence will take part in a round table discussion in richmond. it comes a day after democratic senator dianne feinstein of california introduced new legislation that goes even further than the assault weapons ban that expired a decade ago. >> weapons designed originally for the military to kill large numbers of people in close combat are replicated for civilian use. columbine, virginia tech, aurora, tucson, oak creek. the common thread in these shootings is each gunman used a semiautomatic assault weapon or large capacity ammunition magazine. we should be outraged by how easy it is for perpetrators of these horrific crimes to obtain powerful military style weapons. >> the proposal bans more than 150 specific firearms, including semiautomatic weapons and magazines holding more than ten rounds. despite the aggressive approach, some democrats argue that an assault weapons ban could be a heavy lift for congress. yesterday vice president joe biden said h

president joe biden. we're all part of this. they were shouting we're in this together and we're going to act together and we're going to try to open dialogue with those who would be our enemies abroad. we're not looking for another war this time and under this president we're looking for a way to avoid one. because these wars as we've all learned the hard way are a lot easier to start than to finish. let's start with this astounding presidential embrace of the ongoing american revolution from lexington and concord to seneca falls, selma, and stonewall. sam stein covers politics for "the huffington post," and stephanie schriock is president of emily's list. let's start with the message of inclusion and community in the president's address yesterday. many have noticed his preference for three iconic places with historic significance in the fight for american rights. let me run through them. first, seneca falls, new york, where in 1848 elizabeth cady stanton and others led a historic convention dedicated to women's rights which later led to a women's right to vote, of course. selma, alab
's the real problem. i thought it was interesting. vice president biden said he was not concerned about getting guns out of the hands of minute people. well, i'm the same way. i don't think we should take away from good people, law-abiding people, the right to own firearms. , and what we ought to focus on is where the real problem is. you look at some of the plays that have strict gun control. washington d.c. had the strongest gun control law in the country. ofsh the highest murder rate. they understand the issue is the people that pull the triggers on those guns ask trying to keep guns away from them. that's what we ought to be focused on, and the mentally ill part i do consider a productive step that hopefully something will come of. >> haley barbour, thank you very much, governor. thanks for joining us today. appreciate it. >>> coming up next, carolyn mccarthy, a gun violence victim, and one of the strongest advocates on capitol hill as joe biden takes the road on gun violence. and it's the best as i understandoff. tim geithner could have asked for. the market reactions to ed. this i
the pressure on to make sure that we do get a vote. >> i want to play something that vice president joe biden said at this conference. take a listen. >> they come from a small percentage of the gun crimes in america. more people out there get shot with a glock that has cartridges that you can have magazines that have two, ten, 12, 15, 30 shells in it than from any assault weapon you see. >> it sounds like vice president biden's backing away from the ban on assault rifles. is there a chance that that measure was offered up as a political sacrificial lamb of sorts? is there a chance that a lot of folks knew they had no way of getting that through and they offered it up to be able to say, you know what? we didn't get everything that we wanted. well, i don't think the vice president is backing away at all from his support of the assault weapons ban, but there are three components and i applaud the president for wanting to pass some kind of comprehensive bill, but the main three components that we'd most like to see is the assault weapons ban and the elimination of the multi-round gun clips that h
